I remember having to buy this for one of my history classes in college and I didn't want to get it but she wouldn't let us take the course unless we had everything that was on the list. Well, this item is like the dead obvious of all things. I say it's great to teach kids a thing or two about studying but when you're in college or even high-school it serves no purpose. If you have to buy this for one of your classes, don't, it's a waste of money.

The history handbook is a great book to have. It is easy to read and extremely helpful when you are taking History 101. For those who are attending college again, this book is so helpful.
